36 1/15/2019 3:55:00 PM Jan-Apr 1942 Allies Message Sorry to hear that John. Good luck and hope life gets easier.
35 1/15/2019 3:29:00 PM Jan-Apr 1942 Japanese Message Do to work and personal issues, I need to drop from the game since I cannot devote the time that I should to the game.
34 1/7/2019 1:17:00 PM Jan-Apr 1942 Allies Message Okay, will work on my turn.

Thanks.
33 1/7/2019 1:02:00 PM Jan-Apr 1942 Japanese Message Yes, I take your reading of the card.
32 1/7/2019 10:45:00 AM Jan-Apr 1942 Allies Message You were questioning the rolls for the attacks. So I wanted to make sure we were on the same page.
31 1/7/2019 9:08:00 AM Jan-Apr 1942 Japanese Message Yes, everything is fine is there something that I need to do. I sent you my move so I thought you would just return it with your move?
30 1/7/2019 8:39:00 AM Jan-Apr 1942 Allies Message Everything okay John?
29 1/2/2019 11:23:00 AM Jan-Apr 1942 Allies Message I checked a couple of places and the +4 is for any mixed/jungle terrain hex along with any Malaya hex.
28 12/27/2018 2:33:00 PM Jan-Apr 1942 Allies Message Does the card only affect Malaya for the +4 or any Jungle/Mixed terrain hex?
27 12/27/2018 2:32:00 PM Jan-Apr 1942 Allies Message Japan has 27 factors attacking Kuantan, 38th army (18 factors) + 25th army (9 factors) = 27 factors.
Die roll was 2 +4 (card) = 6 = 1x = 27 factors
9 factors to damage the 3rd Indian Army and another 9 to destroy it
26 12/27/2018 1:52:00 PM Jan-Apr 1942 Japanese Message Okay, I believe there are a few problems. Japanese units 25 and 38 attack hex 2014 (Kuantan) they receive a +4 DRM.
The attacks in the Phillippines don't receive the +4 DRM.
25 12/23/2018 1:23:00 PM Jan-Apr 1942 Allies Message In Manilla, I believe the ground unit is damaged and then destroyed. The HQ is removed to the turn track for next turn. And the FEAF will emergency move to Samar/Leyte.

Kuantan - the Indian infantry is damaged and destroyed.
24 12/23/2018 1:15:00 PM Jan-Apr 1942 Allies Message Japan 2+4 = 6 = 1x 27 = 27

Allies = 3 = 1x 9 = 9, not enough to damage land unit

15 12/18/2018 4:58:00 PM Jan-Apr 1942 Japanese Draw Strategy cards Drew 7 cards.

NOTE: Using 'Historical Opening' option.

14 12/18/2018 1:15:00 PM Jan-Apr 1942 Allies Message According to the tournament site, we are using the historical Japanese hand option.

I sent my emergency naval moves via ACTS message, you can look at previous messages in ACTS by clicking on the View game journal link on the right side of the game page.
13 12/18/2018 12:29:00 PM Jan-Apr 1942 Japanese Message I thought we were playing the 1943 game (3 turns long) I see that we are playing the Campaign starting with the 1942 opening. Will we be playing the Historical Japanese Opening? Also I believe that you have the option to use a naval movement before the Japanese phase starts, do you wish to do this? Do you wish to send moves via Vassal or just submitting the move hex by hex and unit name(s) on the message board? I have found the button that you talked about to fill my hand, thanks for the help.
12 12/17/2018 8:15:00 AM Jan-Apr 1942 Allies Message in the ACTS interface, I believe their is a link on the left to draw your initial cards.

As to the map, we can send it back and forth or just track it and at the end of the turn one send to the other.

Battles, are done through messages and using the Request a die roll link on the right side of the ACTS interface for all die rolls.
11 12/16/2018 7:36:00 AM Jan-Apr 1942 Japanese Message Hello, sorry about the delay, I am working long hours and only have Monday and Tuesday and part of Sunday free. How do I draw my cards? Having some problems with Firefox working with the ACTS web site. How do want to do the move, send it via Vassal or just write down the units and were they are going? Also how do we do battles?
10 12/15/2018 11:01:00 AM Jan-Apr 1942 Allies Message I believe its to you, John to start the game.

6 12/11/2018 10:27:00 AM Jan-Apr 1942 Allies Message We use ACTS to record and track our moves, from what I understand. We can keep track in Vassal or on our own games are whatever.

I can occasionally play on line.
5 12/9/2018 1:55:00 PM Jan-Apr 1942 Japanese Message Okay you can be the Allies. It has been some time since I have played on ACTS, so I am not sure how this will work. Are we using Vassal for the game module do we send the module to each other or post it on ACTS? If we post the module on ACTS hope you will tell me how. Do you wish to play any part online, I can play almost anytime Sunday - Tuesday or after 2 PM eastern time Wednesday - Saturday.
Good gaming,
John Vogel
